Reinvention 2011 Part 2: Reimaging

Sometimes when businesses have sagging sales, they'll make certain changes in hopes to recapture their customers or even gain new ones.  The product in essence may be the same, however, it may appear to be entirely different to some.  People as well can reimage their own lives.  We'll talk with two image consultants who work with both companies and the public.  Join us!

Live Streaming from 12pm - 1pm: http://www.whro.org/home/html/liveradio/895.html

Question: Who or what do you think has been successful at "re-imaging" or rebranding? Created positive buzz? Who or what do you think has failed at rembranding? Please let us know! You can share your thoughts with us by emailing us at hearsay@whrv.org or by commenting on our facebook page, www.facebook.com/hearsaywithcathylewis

Guests:
Dave Iwans - President, DIA, Inc. Marketing, Advertising and Public Relations

School Nutrition: The Impossible Dream?
Monday, President Obama signed the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act --a bipartisan bill that will simultaneously tackle childhood hunger and obesity by getting healthier food into schools and by expanding free and reduced lunch programs at schools across the nation. It's the first update to school nutrition since the Carter Administration. So what will that mean here in Hampton Roads? Today on HearSay, we'll talk with Helen Phillips, Senior Director of Norfolk Public Schools Nutrition. We'll also hear from super-blogger Catherine McCord, who works tirelessly on her blog "weelicious" to help parents instill healthy eating habits in their children, and themselves.


Guests:
Helen Phillips, SNS - Director of School Nutrition, Norfolk Public Schools and National School Lunch Association President-elect
Marion Nestle, Ph.D. - NYU - Paulette Goddard Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health
Chef Ann Cooper - School Nutrition Activist "The Renegade Lunch Lady"
Michael Graziano - Filmmaker, "Lunch Line"
Catherine McCord - Blogger and Child Nutrition Activist

Tuesday, December 14 - HearSay Tech - The Social Network Break-up

Posted by: susan 12/14/2010 2:41 AM

HearSay Tech - The Social Network Break-up
Worried about your relationship? Going into the holiday season, maybe you should be. Tracking search terms for breakups across 10,000 Facebook status updates, researchers found that Christmas Day had the fewest splits, but the weeks leading up to Christmas constituted one of two yearly peaks. So what's with all the relationship fallouts when it's supposed to be the most wonderful time of year? Today on HearSay, we'll take a look at those findings. Plus, we'll explore the "social-media" relationship.


Guests:
Ed Sykes
- HearSay Tech Consultant and Motivational Expert
Jason & Kelli Krafsky - "The Social Media Couple" and authors of "Facebook and Your Marriage"
Ken Altshuler - President-Elect of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers & radio host (WGAN-AM Portland, ME)
